The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

I'm just taking a guess here, but I assume you mean your applications-menu? Which Session are you in? Gnome2? Right click on the panel, choose Add to Panel... and then add Menu Bar.

For the time being: Is Alt-F2 working? If so, start your programmes by hand. Shutting down or rebooting can be done but using Ctrl+Alt+F1, logging in and issuing the command "sudo init 0" for a shutdown, or "sudo init 6" for a reboot. :)

Regards,

Anakin
